The kind of game I've been waiting for. Guitar Hero Controllers no more. Fender Stratocastor is the guitar I want. And they still keep the original. Sweet.
I can plug it into my amp...sweet. Now I can have my real Fender and my Rock Band Fender to play around on. But is there only one pickup on this new one? Also can I change the stings? Does anyone have info on this?
wow that looks awesome. If it works as good as it looks like it works then this game could very well change the way people learn to play the guitar. Of course you would still need to get out of the game at some point and jam without the crutches and to get all the bends right. But that real guitar controller and essentially what is a TAB format that 'grades' you is a game changer for people who want to take music gaming to the next level.
@Laurana88 The pro mode has it's own progression from easy to expert. Easy pro mode uses just single notes. As you go up to expert, the game adds chords, hammer ons, and other techniques until at expert, you're playing the song note for note.
Finally! I can play a ton of songs easily on a real guitar that I struggle with on the Rock Band guitars.
That's some impressive technology. Looks a little complicated but I'm sure the tutorials are pretty in-depth. I'm glad Harmonix is trying to innovate their IP rather than driving it into the ground.
I think this looks awesome. Looks hard, but if the general concensus is that the pro mode could actually help to teach you to play actual guitar I will be getting this ASAP.
... Do they allow two guitarists and a bassist now? It'd be nice. I also hope they take muting into account with the strumming with chords (where it's not a big deal if you strum an extra string up or down, because your left first finger and palm/thumb is muting...).
